Stunning performance from the Barcelona team as they thrashed Celta Vigo at the Nou Camp. Ernesto Valverde’s men drew 1-1 in the first leg week ago.it’s all to play for in the last 16 of the competition after the first leg ended a draw.
BARCELONA 5-0 CELTA VIGO (BARCELONA OFF TO THE QUARTER FINALS)
Honestly, it was all over from the moment the Argentine professional player Lionel Messi struck in the 13th minute with four additional goals dropping off in the Celata net which caused a discouragement on the side that battled well in the first leg.
It was another goal from the never relenting Messi who launched another strike within two minutes away from the opening goal.To be candid, Celta caved in after that horrific 31 first half minutes.
The Uruguayan professional player Suarez posed a brilliant effort as he pounce on the ball just inside the Celta half,spots the keeper off his line and surged a fierce strike that sails over the keeper.No doubt that Barca will be joining Real Madrid in the quarter finals.

Suarez turns clear of Hugo Mallo and then throw himself over the defender’s thigh, he should expect a penalty booking for the Barcelona team but that was quite away from the referee’s point of view.Eventually, he got a stroke past the goal keeper as Sisto(Celta) makes a awkward error trying to pass back to keeper, Suarez launches unto it and off it clocked the fourth goal.
Barca were too distracted with their field control,they held a tight defensive side and enough concentration was established.Semedo storms up the right wing and deliver a perfect cross which Suarez duly launched out of the danger zone.
Barcelona had a third before the half hour mark. Jordi Aba who assisted in the first two goals won by Messi gets in on act as the Argentine returned the favor with an incredible pass. Messi curls a ridiculous ball on the path of Alba who managed to get touch ahead of the on rushing keeper.
Ivan Rakitic gets Barcelona the fifth, he went close moments earlier after Dembele”s cross and pair combine again to add to the score sheet. Sub Dembele whips in a corner and the Croat is unmarked in the line. He guides his header into the net to wrap up the win.
